Ahhh, Madeira drive, Brighton. Been there many, many times. Here`s me and Mrs. Welshrob Mark 1, during the filming of the Quadrophenia backdrop movie, about 1000 years ago, back when I was on the "other" team!




She said, "You can`t take ANYTHING seriously, can you?" I just laughed.

Were those lights useful for hunting rabbits?

Welshrob,

the relationship between scooter riders and motorcycle riders these days is good! In fact there were a few scooters at Brightona (October 2012). Here is one......

On a 200cc motor with 6 volt direct lighting from a flywheel magneto, wiring all those lights up and switching them on would have the same effect as stamping on the brakes then sticking a match in the petrol tank.

Only the headlight was connected.
